Take on the Historic Offa’s Dyke!

3 Distance Options

Walk, Jog, or Run

Anywhere, Anytime in November

Share Your Journey on our Virtual Map 

Back in the 8th Century things were a bit different than now, and it was the Anglo Saxon King Offa of Mercia who wanted to keep the Welsh out of England, and so he decided to built an earthworks ‘dyke’ to ensure they stayed to the west. Today the Offa’s Dyke Path, a National Trail, starts near Chepstow and finishes at Prestatyn on the coast, passing through a variety of stunning landscapes, from the Wye Valley, the Black Mountains, to the Clwydian Hills in the north – and is a fantastic setting for our November ‘Virtual Challenge’.

 

The ‘Full Dyke Challenge’ is 285 km if you are up for it  – with Half & Quarter Dyke options also available. Choose your challenge – take it on anywhere, anytime – log your progress on our ‘virtual trail map’ – and share your journey & story online with others as you head north. Fundraise for a charity of your choice if that suits – and there’s a special ‘Offa’s Dyke’ medal & neck buff for all challengers.

How it works...

Track your progress online

Once you’ve signed up to your chosen distance, you can ‘link’ up to our integrated TRAIL MAP with Strava (so your activities will automatically feed through to our online map) OR you can add your activities manually (so once an activity is logged you’ll progress along our virtual map). You have all November to complete your challenge.
